Roadhouse, the new album by blues-rocker Marc Amacher, pulls the listener into that kind of cathartic environment, where all bets are off and rules are made to be broken. It's an explosive collection of 13 songs by a musician whose deep connection to blues tradition doesn't prevent him from pushing the boundaries of the genre.
Amacher remained widely unknown outside his native region until 2016, when he decided to audition for the popular TV talent show The Voice of Germany and he made it all the way through to the finals. His successful run included duets with showbiz biggies in-cluding Robbie Williams and Alicia Keys, who praised him for his strong stage presence and soul-infused voice. After riding the wave of interest that followed those TV appearances.
Amacher is now back where he belongs: with an electric guitar in his hand and a kick-ass band behind him.
